They already made a movie but they never released it.

Rock Hudson played Freddie, he even got AIDS so he could feel more like Freddie. It was his way to get inside the character

i read in an entertainment magazine about the guy who plays Will in "Will & Grace" playing Freddie in a movie about his life. it kind of shocked me because he looks nothing like freddie. freddie was a cutie.

Hey,

I was wondering if the movie will be produced: who is the best actor to play freddie? I think Robert de niro or Al Pacino would do a great job or maybe that guy from moulin rouge and trainspotting (mac Gregor is his last name I suppose) I think it shouldn't be made with a "B-actor" What do other people think ???

So if I grow a moustache I look like Freddie and I should play him in a movie.
I think Saddam Hussain should play Freddie, he also has a moustache

Here's a scene that I would love to be included into a movie about Freddie. I know many people will say that this is cheasy and so, but what the fuck, here we go:

Freddie has died and the Tribute concert has been held. Brian May is playing a concert during his BTTL tour. Before Love of My Life he gives the usual speech about perfroming this song for Freddie. The lights go dark and there is only one spotlight at Brian. The atmospehere is very emotional while Brian performs this song alone, without Freddie at his side. Then towards the end of the song Freddie walks into the spotlight and starts to sing, just like he did so many times while Queen were still touring. Then the song ends with Freddie singing the "I still love you"-line. After that the lights go on and Brian is alone on the stage.

Yes, it's cheasy, but so what?

I'm happy you're not a script writer Whisperer.

Freddie to come back in 1993? That sucks!

It's not a real Queen movie with a happy ending

No, no, Fried. This would be a kinda paranormal ending. Freddie comes back from behind the grave for a few minutes for a last farewell. This could be very emotional if done right.

This has alread been used in some movies when someone meets a dead friend or something.

I hope that no-one's gotta say ask questions like "Should the crowd go crazy when Freddie enters?" or "Would the newspapers write about it on the next day?".

My idea is to create something like the last scene of Titanic where the main characters come down the stairs and all the people look at them and smile.
